45th Annual Greek Festival
Birmingham, AL

- Alexis Pappas -




The 45th Annual Greek Festival is set for September 21-23, 2017 from 10:30am-10:00pm in downtown Birmingham. This is one of Birminghamʼs oldest cultural food festivals and most highly anticipated events. The festival is an act of love of Birminghamʼs Greek community going back to 4 generations. Besides delicious Greek cuisine, youʼll enjoy a band playing Greek music, authentic Greek dance performances, and a warm spirited atmosphere that embraces everyone as family. As thousands of returning patrons can attest, you will leave a devoted fan. 

The Holy Trinity - Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Cathedral Christian Church began in 1906 and is one of the oldest Greek Orthodox parishes in the United States. The Cathedral Byzantine architecture is breathtaking so donʼt miss the chance to take a free guided tour all three days on an ongoing basis. A portion of the festival proceeds will benefit different charities and ministries across the Birmingham area. 

Free parking one block away is available in the former Liberty National building on 3rd Avenue and 20th Street South. If you don’t have time to attend the festival, Drive-Thru Service is available all three days from 10:30am-7pm. No need to call ahead and place your order. Our servers will greet you, take your big or small order, and deliver right to your vehicle. 

The festival offers  free admission, indoor and outdoor dining, and food plates are individually priced. Be sure to stroll through The Greek Market Place which has imported food, icons,  jewelry, art, and much more.  Come experience a taste of Greece without the airfare!
